    • WYSIWYG [SIV366]

    • Making a Splash [SIV365]

      8/9/14: Vermont is well known for its beloved swimming holes. These hidden spots are the best way to stay cool during our short summers. On a steamy Saturday, Eva and Michael take the plunge at Bristol Falls, Warren Falls and Lareau Hole in Waitsfield. And remember to always play it safe when swimming in these spots as there is no lifeguard on duty. Check the water depth before jumping and beware of strong currents. Always keep your eye on children as they can drown in 20 seconds or less. Have...
